Energy losses of waves in shallow water.

W. G. Grosskopf, C. L. Vincent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A method is presented for predicting nearshore significant wave height from the straight-line length, windspeed, and the nearshore water depth. The prediction curves were calculated from Joint North Sea Wave Project (JONSWAP) spectra and shoaling and wave steepness limitation criteria. (K.R.)
